We are pleased to inform you that The Renaissance Charter School will implement a new option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for School Year 2018-2019.

What does this mean for you and your children? Great news for you and your children!

All enrolled students of The Renaissance Charter School are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2018-2019 school year. No further action is required of you. Your children will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay for meals or submit an application.

If your children attend schools that are not participating in CEP, your household may still need to fill out a confidential meal application or pay for meals.

If you have questions, please contact your Food Service Office.

If we can be of any further assistance, please contact us at: Silvia Segovia, 718-803-0060, silviasegovia@rencharter.org or Michele Cardona, 718-803-0020, ext. 117; michelecardona@rencharter.org.
